The EEG correlates of romantic love
This study looked for a correlation between romantic love and EEG data. Fifteen university students (fourteen female, one male) were used who professed a strong feeling of love for their partner. The EEG data was compared while they viewed pictures of their loved one and pictures of well known celebrities. There was a significant quadratic trend over all sites and several band widths. Greatest overall quadratic significance was seen at F7 which aligned with the insula which has been shown to be a key neural structure in the production of love ( Bartels & Zeki, 2000). Therefore there appears to be the greatest relationship between F7 and romantic love that needs to explored further in future research.
